Day of Silence

Dear DECORUM! Readers,

To be a diplomat–or to be a strong world citizen–it’s important to strive for tolerance.  The National Day of Silence takes place tomorrow (Friday, April 16, 2010) in schools across America to promote such respect for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender students and to call “attention to anti-LGBT name-calling, bullying and harassment.”  Are you in?  Get more info at http://www.dayofsilence.org/index.cfm.
